* After a break of some months, Mark has again resumed work on his follow-up to 2011's
"Central State." The new songs are said to marry "edginess" with "beauty" -- sonically "raw" and "dirty," "light" and "dark."
* Mark contributed music for Ben Stamper's short time-lapse movie of Hurricane Sandy hitting Hoboken, NJ. Check it out HERE.
